Wait so they're just ignoring where Reigns announced that he would be #1 contender like 3 weeks ago?

If I remember correctly (and maybe I don't!) he said he was going to be the Number One Contender because nobody could stand up to him or beat him, at which point first Joe and then later Braun returned to remind him that they have stood up to him and beat him. Then Braun beat him in the ambulance match too!

Plus that segment was basically Roman going "Yo, gimme ma title shot, Kurt!" and Kurt, Paul, Brock and Joe all going "Why the gently caress should you get a title shot when you lost AND tried to commit a murder?"

Also, fun fact, Roman Reigns has not defeated any of the 4 other men in the ring in that segment in a singles match environment.

I assume so, he was on the latest Preacher (which is a real good show). Probably just a mix-up of his Tyrus name.

The Dean and Paige ones are both bad enough to have killed the gimmick, even if that's not the official reason.

I just realized what the protracted sequence from Eat Balls of trying to get Braun out of the ambulance reminded me of: The funeral parlor segment where Ultimate Warrior gets locked inside an airtight casket

Highly recommended
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TzYjUvGaWUY

Heel commentator Macho Man even starts panicking and when they finally get it open you can see Warrior had been attempting to claw through it with his bare hands.

Even with Warrior gone from the company, they did an awesome callback to this about six months later. Hogan was on the Funeral Parlor and Undertaker did the same ambush. Only this time from the commentary booth you hear Piper say "Okay, let's do this" and he and Savage ran down with chairs in hand to save Hogan. Undertaker no-sold the chair shots, but Paul had him back off regardless.

Charles Gnarwin posted:

The worst part is that the crowd was clearly so into the idea of Joe getting at Brock again and didn't give a gently caress about Roman. It's one thing to pretend that Roman is the crowd favorite when he's in a segment alone, but no amount of editing and insane logic can hide it when the better option is 3 feet from him.

Well, Heyman and Brock certainly didn't help, Brock really seemed to want to work Joe again and Heyman is pushing his storyline fear.

Also, the dynamic of Brock and Heyman works awesomely where Brock pays Heyman to speak and negotiate for him because he can't be bothered to, but when Brock's pissed or cocky he'll grab the mic while Heyman looks on increasingly worried about how he'll have to deal with the fallout. See also:

What the gently caress are they doing with Dean and Seth? Dean and Seth vs. Miztourage two on three?

That's probably the program, but honestly it seems like them rehabbing their characters, and reminding them of the concept of friendship. Seth sure could use something likeable about him.

I always marked out for George Steele showing up here. As a kid it was the first time I noticed a former wrestler in the role of a backstage agent that runs out when pandemonium breaks loose. While Tony Garea and Renee Goulet would always show up during that time period, young Minidust had no idea who those guys were so it didn't register.

Finn said in an interview that he tells people who don't follow wrestling that he's an "entertainer" but tries to avoid the topic of his career altogether out of shame. And when other obviously large wrestlers got spotted in NXT he'd lie and say he wasn't a wrestler and just did office work

I think I like Finn now

He's just protecting the business. That isn't Fergal Devitt in the ring there, that's Finn Bálor. They're obviously different people.
